It was an active Cinco De Mayo weekend as Donald Glover hosted Saturday Night Live and then switched over to the musical side as Childish Gambino performed two new tracks titled “This Is America” and “Saturday.”
Shortly after the performance he released “This Is America” on all platforms and even shared the official video for the single. It is produced by Gambino himself and Ludwig Göransson and he got help from a few familiar names (21 Savage, Quavo, Young Thug, Slim Jxmmi and BlocBoy JB) for the ad-libs throughout the track.
All I’m going to say is wow…best video of the year (so far). I’ve been watching it multiple times a day. Still trying to figure out what or SZA symbolizes in the video, any help.
Anyways, if you haven’t seen it yet press play already! Directed by Hiro Murai.
